Hip Hop India

Mumbai, August 8th 2023: Amazon miniTV’s dance-reality series, Hip Hop India has been infusing enthralling performances and revolutionizing the dance culture. Witnessing paraphernalia of art from a pool of raw talent, the reality series has garnered artistic recognition from eminent judges – Remo D’ Souza and Nora Fatehi. From contemporary hip–hop, and lyrical breaking to the Indian classical scene, Hip Hop India dazzled its viewers with vivifying episodes.

Sarthak’s triumphant takeover from Ajay & Vartika’s thunderbolt performance led Nora and Remo to honor her by hanging their boots. Moreover, Rahul Bhagat gave a special performance of the song “Main toh tere pyaar me deewana ho gaya ” which made Remo and Nora applaud him with all their heart

Mumbai Ki Gully Se Divyam and Darsham the melodic “Raanjhanaa” served as the out-and-out backdrop for flawless open-style hip hop — as they danced their way into the judges’ hearts. The friends-turned-choreographers duo and Nora go back to the World Cup Rehearsal sharing saccharine memories with the actor, fondly reminiscing Nora’s tantalising walk from the World Cup 2022. Showcasing his immense love for Nora, he candidly expressed, “If you would not have been a dancer then you would be a lawyer. Kya aap mere dil ka case laroge?” which left the judges in splits.

Post the unabashedly aggressive performance by the Nupur78 crew on “Kesariyaan Saiyaan Saiyaan” that left the judges stunned, the Mega Crew sparked the Hip Hop India stage to life. Conveying a climacteric message to the quintessential women artists of today, the Mega Crew team remarked, “Being a girl if you adopt hip-hop culture it is completely fine and great… we need to perform on the world stage and bring the hip-hop culture up.”

The top 12 contestants for the dance reality show Hip Hop India on the streaming service were chosen after four days of intense tryouts, which saw fierce competition amongst SOLOs, DUOs, and Crew’s Teams as well as ‘Gully Se Glory Tak’ prize takeovers. The show also saw talents who can be counted as the best in their categories across the globe. Talented Hip Hop dancer Bboy Tornado a.k.a. Ramesh Yadav and the popular dance troop Yo Highness made their mark with their outstanding performance. Bboy Tornado hails from the gullies of Mumbai and started his dance journey by traveling to cities while using the money he earned to travel. Tornado made it to the top 26 in the 2023 Japan Olympics, and by becoming the first Indian to qualify in the category, he brought unmeasurable honor to the nation.
